KICs EUROPEAN IMPACT AND GOOD
PRACTICE

INNOVATION FACTORY (KIC) MODEL (1/2)


High degree of integration
: each KIC is an independent legal entity,
gathering world
-
class KIC partners from the knowledge triangle.



Effective governance
: run by a CEO, supported by a lean management
team at central and co
-
location level.



Long
-
term strategic approach
: each KIC is set up for a minimum of 7
years.



Annual Business Plans
presented, evaluated and approved by EIT HQ.




INNOVATION FACTORY (KIC) MODEL (2/2)


Culture:

KICs are shaped by strong entrepreneurial mindsets and cultures
of their partners, pulling together for common visions and goals.



High degree of commitment of partners/smart funding
: EIT funding
to KICs is 25% of their total budget over time (75% to be attracted from
other sources, public and private).



The co
-
location model
: each KIC consists of typically 5
-
6 world class
innovation hotspots building and leveraging on existing European capacities.



Results/High
-
Impact
-
oriented activities
: KICs implement a Business
Plan with measurable deliverables, clear targets, results and high
-
impact
-
oriented activities.
